Communicating Your Story Effectively – Essential Ingredients to Engage the Culture

How do we navigate gender equality, displaced people, and conflict resolution when beliefs collide globally? Are there ways to use media effectively bring solutions? Our U.S laws tell us that we have the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion. But many are denied jobs, living conditions, and social freedoms because of their spiritual faith and gender in global countries. Shirin Taber, director of Empower Women Media, will share her journey and global perspective with Influence Women host, Kathleen Cooke on May 8th for this informative Influence Webinar.
